APEEEL1 representatives participated the Luxembourg Steering Group meeting on the 24th March 2021.

The group is composed of representatives of the two European schools in Luxembourg, the EU institutions, the Luxembourgish Ministry for Education, teachers and parents. It is chaired by the Secretary General of the European Schools. The group discusses Luxembourg specific issues.

The main topic at this meeting was the retention of teachers. The Secretary General presented figures from which he concluded that neither Lux 1 nor Lux 2 experience significant loss of teachers to the new Luxembourg accredited schools.

We raised some points asking for more information, but we did not receive satisfactory answers during the meeting itself. We will continue to closely monitor the situation.

We will also contact the Luxembourgish authorities regarding access to Educational support; use of one2one scheme; school books; other possible resources available to public schools in Luxembourg (such as extracurricular activities).
